Throughout this work, we have referred numerous times to a corpus of inscriptions that deal with the internal workings of the deme of Acharnai or which are associated with the deme through their content or findspots. It seems that it would be useful to provide the reader with the texts of some of these inscriptions for reference. This is not an exhaustive compendium of all inscriptions from, or dealing with people from, Acharnai; such a list can be found in the Index. Similarly, no interpretation or analysis of the inscriptions in question will be entered into here, as this has already been done, but translations have been provided for the inscriptions. Where appropriate, the entries are accompanied by a brief list of some of the relevant secondary literature.

1) Decree of the demesmen concerning construction of altars for Ares and Athena Areia, c.340–335 BCE (SEG 21.519)

When Leon was priest, resolved by the Acharnians. Kalliteles the son of Stesios proposed: In order that the altar of Ares and Athena Areia be constructed in the best possible way, since the god answered that it is more agreeable and better for the deme of the Acharnians and the dēmos of the Athenians to construct the (p.206) altars of Ares and Athena Areia so that the affairs of the gods be piously inclined towards the Acharnians and the Athenians, resolved by the Acharnians: Since the selected people and the architects declare the cost of the construction, to declare the sum that the demesmen think appropriate for the construction of the altars, in order that no impediment to the construction arise before the sacrifice of the Areia. And in order that the person advancing the moneys be reimbursed…

Gods. The priest of Ares and Athena Areia, Dion the son of Dion of Acharnai made the dedication.

The ancestral oath of the ephebes, which it is necessary for the ephebes to swear. I shall not disgrace the sacred arms nor abandon my comrade wherever I am stationed. I shall defend that which is sacred and holy and shall not hand down a lessened country, but one greater and better by my efforts and with everyone, and I shall obey those who govern reasonably at any time, and the established laws and those which they will establish reasonably in the future. If anyone destroys them, by my own efforts and with everyone I shall not allow it, and I shall honour the ancestral religion. Witnesses: Gods Aglauros, Hestia, Enyo, Enyalios, Ares and Athena Areia, Zeus, Thallo, Auxo, Hegemone, Herakles, the boundaries of the fatherland, wheat, barley, grapevines, olives, figs.

The oath which the Athenians swore when they were about to fight against the barbarians. ‘I shall fight as long as I live, and I shall not make it more important to live rather than to be free, and I will not abandon the Taxiarch or the Enomotarch, neither being alive nor dead, and I shall not retreat unless the leaders lead [the army] away, and I shall do whatever the generals command, and the ones who die of the allied fighting-men I shall bury in the same place and not leave behind anyone unburied. And being victorious in battle over the barbarians I shall tithe the city of the Thebans, and I shall not destroy Athens or Sparta or Plataia nor any other city which fought together, nor shall I allow [them] to be coerced by hunger nor shall I keep flowing waters from them, being friends or enemies. And if I uphold the terms of the oath, may my city be free of sickness, and if not, may it become sick. And may my city be unsacked, and if not, may it be sacked. And may my [land] bear [fruit], and if not, may it be unfruitful. And may my women bear children alike to their parents, and if not, monsters. And may cattle bear calves alike to cattle, and if not, monsters.’ And swearing these things, covering the sacrifices with their shields, at the sound of the trumpet they made a curse, if any of the oath terms should be violated, and if they should not maintain the words of the oath: that guilt-pollution be on the ones who swore it.

(A): Diogenes son of Naukydes proposed. Since Phanomachos, the treasurer during the archonship of Praxiboulos, sacrificed to the gods and the heroes on behalf of the dēmotai in his year, and tended to the Dionysia well and honourably with the demarch Oinophilos, and has made a phialē weighing one mna of silver according to the law, and has made account of everything which he administered to the city and to the dēmotai within the time of the laws of the city and of the dēmotai, and has surrendered to the Acharnians the money remaining in his care from the housekeeping fund to the amount of 329 drachmas, and has rendered account [and] seems to have been frugal [and acted] justly, and of everything else, administered well and honourably the things which the Acharnians assigned to him: resolved by the Acharnians, to praise Phanomachos the son of Nikodemos of Acharnai and to crown him with a crown of olive for the sake of his love of honour and justice towards the dēmotai; and that the secretary of the dēmotai engrave this decision on a stone stele and erect it in the sanctuary of Athena Hippia; and that the treasurer pay out twenty drachmas for the engraving of the stele and render account to the dēmotai.

(B): Diogenes the son of Naukydes proposed. Since the demarch Oinophilos and the treasurer Phanomachos and the supervisor of the Dionysia have taken care of the sacrifice to Dionysos well and honourably, and the procession and the contest, and administer everything else on behalf of the dēmotai according to the laws: resolved by the Acharnians, to praise the demarch Oinophilos the son of Oinophilos and the treasurer Phanomachos the son of Nikodemos, and the supervisor Leon the son of Theon, and to crown each of them with a crown of ivy, and that the demarch announce these crowns at the contest of the Dionysia of the Acharnians, and that the demarch Oinophilos engrave this decision on a stone stele and erect it in the sanctuary of Athena Hippia, and that the treasurer Phanomachos give twenty drachmas for the engraving and render account to the dēmotai, and that these men and their descendants be given the right of proedria in the first bench for all time at the contest of the Dionysia of the Acharnians.

… and his…each and every year the treasurer and the demarch, whoever happen to hold office, [to pay out] twenty drachmas from the monies being collected from the theatre. And if the theatre is not let out, the demarch and the treasurer, whoever happen to hold office, are to give to them the sum written for the sacrifice from the housekeeping fund of the dēmotai. And the secretary with the dēmotai engrave this decision on a stone stele and erect it in the sanctuary of Athena Hippia, and the demarch —enes pay out to them twenty drachmas for the engraving of the stele and render account to the dēmotai.
